Sadhguru, a yoga guru and social media celebrity with more than 8.6 million Instagram followers, says his philosophy is to always feel “bliss.”
“If you mistaken your lifestyle for life, you will always suffer because someone else will always have a better lifestyle than you, or a more exuberant and extravagant lifestyle. It doesn’t matter,” the mystic told CNBC’s Dan Murphy.
He thinks too many people confuse the two.
“Whatever your lifestyle, life is the most precious thing you have and the only thing you have,” he said. It doesn’t matter what you wear if you’re happy.”
Separating happiness from luxury and wealth is one of the guru’s main teachings that he often repeats. Last year, he shared his thoughts on this message on social media. Tweet: “People are committed to their lifestyle, not their lives. When you commit to your lifestyle, you become a slave to how much you make.”
Sadhguru’s philosophy of bliss and contentment also keeps him from failing, he told CNBC.
“There are no failures in my life, because I suffer nothing.
“I’m always a little happier, so it’s okay.”
“How I am in myself is determined by me, not by what I am doing, but even by the consequences of what I am doing,” Sadguru said.
Millions Follow Sadguru’s Teachings
Also known as Jagadish “Jaggi” Vasudev, the 64-year-old began teaching yoga in India 40 years ago and has since amassed millions of followers around the world.
They look to him for guidance on spirituality, meditation and the so-called ‘realm of mysticism’. This concept is related to the ancient yogic idea of the “third eye,” which represents a state of heightened awareness and enhanced perception and awareness beyond what is physically visible.
His fans include celebrities like actor Will Smith. Will Smith has revealed that he has been following the guru for years as a result of his best-selling self-help book, Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy. Mr. Smith also Brady It has also been featured on Sadhguru’s social media, endorsing his work. Book.
Sadguru states that his teachings and philosophies are based solely on his understanding of himself and his “pieces of life,” but his followers think he speaks of them. He believes this is because everyone is built the same way.
“Fortunately, every part of life, and somehow the entire universe, is the same replica design. Only the complexity and sophistication are doubled, but essentially the same design.”
In 1992 Sadhguru founded the Isha Foundation. This foundation operates and supports mental, physical, mental health and environmental initiatives and centers around the world. It has nothing to do with religion, partly because gurus associate it with the search for meaning.
“It means nothing”
But under his philosophy, “the universe means nothing.” He believes that those who seek meaning have not experienced life.
“If you experience life as it is, in moments of joy, in moments of love, in moments of ecstatic experience, you don’t look for meaning. Isn’t it only when you are depressed that you look for meaning?” When it’s hard, I look for meaning,” Sadguru told CNBC.
“So I’m always blissful, so I never look for meaning,” he added, relating it to his approach to life.
